Bariles just talked to Mr. Olimpio Par, a senior officer of Soccksargen’s oldest transportation firm, Yellow Bus Line Inc. and confirmed something that has been on some Facebook updates for a week already – they will be offering FREE WIFI INTERNET connection on their Premiere Buses!
“This way, businessmen and and other users of wifi-enabled devices could easily access the internet to check on their email or update their status on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites even while on the move, ” according to an enthusiastic Mr. Par.
Currently, only Aircon Bus #4 which travels the GenSan-Koronadal-Isulan route and vice versa has been equipped with the FREE WIFI Internet connection. According to Mr. Par, they are still on the process of monitoring the performance of PLDT’s signal all throughout the trip before they roll out this service totally in June 2011.
Bariles will be personally riding YBL Aircon bus #4, one of the units of their their newest fleet this afternoon along with other bloggers to try out the wifi connection from GenSan to Koronadal themselves. For sure, they will be making a series of Speed Tests along the way.
Watch out for their update regarding the Free Wifi Internet Connection of Yellow Bus Line in a follow-up post!
But for now, we could only thank the management of Yellow Bus Line, Inc. for levelling up on their services and giving the riding public of South Central Mindanao something to look forward to each time they ride one of their Premiere aircon buses. And if this FREE-WIFI-Internet -Connection service extends to their GenSan-Davao route, guess who won’t be sleeping next time along the three-hour trip to the Durian Capital? 🙂
Our hats off to you Yellow Bus Line!
Thanks to markstopover_002’s for the photo of YBL’s newest bus above from his Flickr account.
guys I was planing to go to T’boli Tribe, I was windering how much is the fare from Gensan to Maasim Sarangani?
Can you please improve your services especially for your trip bound to surallah. It’s so annoying to stand almost half an hour waiting for the bus and yet there are so many standby buses in the premises…is this really your way in satisfying your passengers?
wow!! yong gensan tlaga grave namy wifi na yong mga bus!!!!sanasa bus din ybl my cr din pra hindi na mahirapan yong bumabyahe kong gensan man oh davao atkhit koronadal pa!!!
sir bariles, open ba ang Gensan pag may bagong bus line company papasok rout: Gensan, koronadal, tacurong to cotabato city? thank you..
pnaka-unang wifi bus sa mindanao ang weena express. ndi pa lumabas ang mga hyundai bus ng ybl meron na wifi sa weena express. ung hino nila na airconditioned. ^_^. pero nice yung mga mas bagong hyundai na ybl ngaun 2012
@gamz, thanks for the info. Not sure if tinuloy-tuloy na ito ng YBL. When I checked before, super bagal ng internet connection inside the moving bus. Will give you an update soon. 🙂
[…] Seats soon in GenSan Buses Posted by bariles On January – 13 – 2012 – Please wait Yellow Bus, Husky Bus and Holiday Bus Lines will soon be providing “breastfeeding seats” in their […]
ask lang po kung mayroon po ba kayong vacant applications at kung saan puwedeng i-address.
pwde mgtanong? mgkano po ba ang pamasahe DAVAO -TACURONG??TACURONG-ISULAN?
It only shows that YBL is gearing towards Excellent Customer Service Satisfaction. Level Up! =)
@Mr. Bin: Hindi pa po updated ang nasa Google Earth…partly lang ang visible. I believe ang elevation ng circumferencial road ay nasa pagitan ng 3-60 meters above sea level depende sa location. may part kasi na hilly like in Apopong at may part din na patag lalo na sa may bahagi ng Katangawan.
Excuses, naa naba ang Diversion Road sa Google Maps?
~ Unta ang Diversion Road nana, naa sa higher place, knang mga 100m ASL.
that good news sir, but two lanes only? but i foresee na over time gagawin din tong 4 lanes, alangan namn 2 lanes lang forever e di parang eng eng din kung sino man ang may idea nyan….
Thanks KUYA! 🙂
P.S. 4 lanes ba diversion road natin Sir BARILES?
@fahdingding, two lanes pa lang. 🙂
Then… karapat – dapat i – clap clap ‘to…
Our diversion road can provide two positive effects:
1. SAFETY TO MOTORIST: to divert traffic and unclog the national Highway…
2. This Diversion road can spur economic development on that part of our city…
GOD BLESS this project… Ok lang nahuli tayo importante nandito na!
What about if these buses enter the city using the circumference road and that they have to go to the city terminal which is located in brgy. dadiangas north? would these mean that these buses will have to use the Mabuhay road from the circumference road in going to city terminal? if so, magiging busy ang mabuhay road. wowoweee!
fahdingding- exactly, its about high time na magkakaroon na tayo ng diversion road gaya ng sa Digos, ..masyado na kasing traffic ang nat. highway natin dito bumper to bumber na ang mula gaisano hanggang mcdo kakaloka na tuwing rush hours, tas sisingitan ka pa ng mga pasaway na tricycle at habal habal, minsan kinikilabutan ako para sa car ko dahil sa sobrang lapit nila feeling ko magagasgas ang gilid ng sasakyan ko ang mahal pa naman patanggal ang gasgas ngayon nakakaloka talaga…
@ariel, malapit nang matapos ang diversion road from katangawan to apopong. Parang isang tulay na lang ang ginagawa para tuloy-tuloy na. And from what I’ve learned, this is a priority project of the Regional Development Council XII, where Mayor Darlene Custodio is the Chairperson.
We need a DIVERSION ROAD para daanan ng mga BUSES nato para ma – unclog ang traffic sa national highway….
@Jepoy: Davao – Gensan fare (P250 Aircon) then Gensan to Marbel fare (P70 – 80 for Mabuhay and Premiere Classes respectively aircon)
Thus: DAVAO – KORONODAL = P320 – 330 AIRCON.
hala pag matuloy na to pagpasok ng bagong players for sure magkakarerahan ang mga to para ipakita whos who on the road at mabilis sa publiko, little people who drive in their tiny cars (jazz) like me might get squeezed like grape sa national highway natin sa sobrang kitid dahil 2 lanes lang baga eh sobrang hina ko pa naman magdrive, because i enjoy the scenery while driving to and from Davao, hahaha,
but in fairness sana matuloy ang wifi sa YBL, pa lumevel up na talaga tayo mga generals!!
Paki-usap lamang po sa lahat ng mga bus operators. In the event na papasok na ang mga bagong players ay dapat pumirma sila sa isang pact together with the LGUs tungkol sa pagbabawal sa mga bus na ito na magkarerahan sa highway. Smart driving lang po sana at bawal sa kalsada ang mga jologs na drivers. I hope our LGUs will consider this.
lumang gimik ng mga transport company ang ganyan but still commendable pa rin lalo na para sa mga www netizens, social networkers at palipas-orasers na mga biyahero..
this is good..great for our business economy…
ask ko lang po, if magkano yung pamasahe from davao city to koronadal? sa regular bus or aircon… thanks
cool for YBL
wow.. isa nga ito sa mga pinakamagagandang balita dito sa ting pinakamamahal na lungsod.. magandang gensan! (^_^)
1st in mindanao ba toh? alam ko JAC liner ang 1st wifi bus in the Philippines eh.. hehe
wow! bongga tlga ang YBL! all koronadalenios salute ybl!
Wow! Madugangan na ang akong mga dalhunon inig travel na..
Ang RTMI (Rural Transit Mindanao Inc.) papasok daw sa Gensan, DVO-GSC v.v at GSC-CDO v.v route. :))
It only shows that YBL is gearing towards Excellent Customer Service Satisfaction. Pero sana, later on walang effect ito sa fare namin ha? Hehe.
So whats the answer to the million dollar question?….pasahe…LOL
Yep, the first time I took a wi-fi bus was in Abu Dhabi just 2years ago. Its good to know na meron na rin ganito sa Soscsksargen.
Im glad they used this for their inter-socsksargen routes.
LUPET! Iba na talaga ang GENSAN!
YBL, karapat dapat kang ICLAP! CLAP!
Level up na talaga ang yellow bus. .I just hope that they will have a decent speed for thier internet.
